Clean living environments are essential to long-term health. The more time we stay in a building, the more impact its environment has on our health. Long-term care residents will spend much of their later life indoors and increasingly the focus is put on making these years as healthy as possible. Green building and good indoor air quality enable residents to maintain respiratory health and reduce their risk of disease. Many long-term care facilities recognize the life-changing correlation between healthy buildings and residents, making the conscious decision to invest in non-toxic building products.
Clorox Healthcare Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaner Disinfectants are now registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to kill microorganisms on hard and soft surfaces.
Nursing homes and long-term care facilities are a target-rich environment for energy efficiency improvements, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), which notes that residential facilities consume more energy than schools and about the same amount as office buildings per square foot of occupied space.
